Good thing

Thank you for all you good wishes and prayers. I am feeling reassuringly awful, but found something very interesting today.

Since June, (before I knew I was pregnant) I have been going crazy for avocados. I can't get enough of them. I eat them straight from the skin, with a little salt and vinegar. They ease my queasy stomach, fill me up, and taste oh, so good.

So today I thought, "I wonder what is in avocados?" So I looked it up and what did I find:

In addition, avocados are the perfect food for pregnant women. The folate in one avocado per day provides almost 30% of the recommended daily dosage and helps prevent life threatening birth defects of the spine and brain.

Cool, huh?

I always figure that when I am "craving" a certain food (pregnant or not) then my body must need SOMETHING that's in it.

Did I say congratulations, BTW? Hope you are feeling good! Lemonade helped me get over the "queasies" every time.

That is rather Godincidental, isn't it?

By the way, I just posted something about nutrition over at MY place too!

This is exactly how I learned that potatoes are a good source of vitamin B and that cherries are high in potassium. Who knew?

I agree, we crave things for a reason. With my oldest it was orange juice, clearly I needed Viatamin C.

It's so much better than craving beer and cigarettes!

Wow~glad you were enjoying those early on! Thanks for the info about the possibilities of the painting! I'll mention this to my friend also..still I don't think it was a holy card I saw it. I'm thinking that a distant older cousin who is now deceased had this same version of the child her home ...smaller size, but she is gone now and I can't call and even ask her! I hope my friend finds out this mystery. It needs a tiny bit of restoration. They had it for sale at $2,400..she got it for $800 because no one bid on it! It really is an awesome piece and I wish the photo I had did it justice..sorry about that.
Anyway, you take care, little Momma! :) Suzanne
